How to Use

Charles Craft Monaco Fabric is an evenweave fabric. Evenweave fabrics have an even number of weft and warp threads per inch. Warp threads run the entire length of the fabric, while the weft threads run side-to-side, from selvage to selvage.  The thread count for evenweave fabrics is determined by this number – for example, 28-count Monaco has 28 vertical warp threads and 28 horizontal weft threads per inch of fabric. The higher the count number, the finer and closer the weave will be.  Aida is worked with one X over one square, linen and other evenweaves are generally worked over two threads. The common term for this technique is simply called “over two threads.”  Stitching “over two threads” on 28-count Monaco produces the same size design as one stitched on 14-count aida.
